Lough Gill is located part in County Sligo and part in County Leitrim, Ireland.  Lough Gill has 20 small islands, including the Isle of Innisfree, made famous by W.B. Yeats in his poem titled, "The Lake Isle of Innisfree".  Lough Gill is known for a high number of rare species of plants and animals and is protected by the EU Habitats Directive.

The weather was all over the place this day.  It was overcast, but sunny at times, and raining at other times.  The rain was sporadic enough it didn't really disturb our sightseeing.  That is a great thing about Ireland, the weather can change quickly.
